Not Gayle Or Afridi, This Cricketer Smashed The Longest Six Of 164 Meters

Who knows the record for the longest six in cricket? Nah, neither Chris Gayle nor Shahid Afridi has hit sixes, nor has India’s star big hitter Mahendra Singh Dhoni or Yuvraj Singh. More than 100 years ago, the longest six world record in cricket was set, but to date, no one has even come close to breaking that record.

Albert Trott hit the longest six in cricket history in the eighteenth century. Albert Trott has played cricket for both England and Australia in his career. In the 18th century, Albert hit a six that crossed the pavilion at Lord’s Cricket Ground. The length of those six was 164 meters. This is the longest six in the history of cricket. Albert made the shot against Australia while playing for Marylebone Cricket Club in England.

Albert Trott was one of the most aggressive batsmen of the 19th century. At the time, bowlers were afraid to bowl to Albert Trott. Not only that, he was skilled in batting as well as bowling. The cricketer is said to have shot himself in 1910 at the age of 41.

Former Pakistan explosive all-rounder Shahid Afridi also hit a six. The longest six list includes the names of two Indian batsmen. They are Yuvraj Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Yuvraj Singh has hit a six in his career at a maximum of 119 meters.

Yuvi also has a record of hitting sixes off six balls in T20. On the other hand, Mahendra Singh Dhoni hit a six off 112 meters, which is the highest of his career. In the 2006 Twenty20 World Cup, India’s Yuvraj Singh hit a 119-meter six off Brett Lee during an 80-run innings against Australia.
